Arno’s literacy coach in action

Dr. Chuby is modeling an interactive read aloud below for Mrs. Warneck’s room last week- one of the many offerings Dr. Chuby provides to enhance our reading program at Arno.

And…Dr. Chuby working with a small group of Young 5’s students. The children are using a literacy program called Reading Eggs on their new Chromebooks.

Building to Kindergarten Part II

Arno hosted its 2nd annual Building to Kindergarten II on Feb. 21 for any parent within the Allen Park boundary that has a preschooler about to enter kindergarten in the fall of this year.  The informative event included the skills a child entering kindergarten should have in place by September, and things parents can do to practice those skills until then.  A big thanks to the Arno and Bennie kindergarten teams, as well as Dr. Chuby for an outstanding presentation on getting our future little ones ready for the big day!

Wow!- The tooth Fairy Visits Arno

Smile Clinic in Allen Park is celebrating February’s Children’s Dental Health Month with classroom visits. Stephanie, the hygienist, visited many of our classrooms this past week. She did a Tooth Fairy Program for grades PK-3rd and a Rethink Your Drink Program for grades 4 and 5.
